Neem Oil Natural Home Remedy for Fungus

A great cure for fungal infections is one hundred percent Neem oil.  This is a treatment that has been done for centuries in India for various skin problems.  While it's a completely natural treatment made from tree leaves, it's difficult to find in the United States.  You can probably find it marketed as a treatment for flea and tick repellant for dogs.  Apply the Neem oil to the fungal infection regularly and you'll find that it will help to cure the infection quickly.

One of the most important things to do when treating a fungal infection is to keep the area clean and dry.  After cleaning the area with an antiseptic soap, dry thoroughly with a clean cotton towel.  This is very important as it keeps the fungus from growing and spreading.  Once clean, soak a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar and try attaching it to the affected area with medical tape.  Keep the cotton ball on the skin for approximately half an hour.  You may feel a slight burning feeling, but this is only the vinegar working at killing the fungus.  After thirty minutes have lapsed (or you can no longer stand the burning feeling), remove the cotton ball from the skin.  Dry well with a clean cotton towel.  Once the area is completely dry, apply tea tree oil to the fungus.  This should be done using a cotton swab.  This can have a soothing feeling, but will only soothe the skin of the tea tree oil is diluted with another type of oil like olive or vegetable oil.
